Fantastic Beasts

This weekend the film Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them gets released.  This may be a movie that I will go see in the theaters. Especially since I will have more time with the holiday next week.

I don’t often see movies in the theater as I know that I will eventually see the blockbusters on a flight to somewhere.

However, I have usually seen the Harry Potter movies in the theaters, and this one looks like it will need to be seen on the big screen.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them. J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter, MovieI bought Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander shortly after it was released. For what it is worth, I have a First American Edition. The book was published in February 2001. Hmm, I also checked and it is a first printing. Looking at a few book sites it may be worth $100 – $150. Maybe I should tuck it away so it stays in excellent condition.

The price of the book was $3.99 or 14 Sickles 3 Knuts. I just checked and the cheapest edition now available is around 7-8 dollars.

Of course the book was really written by J. K. Rowling. The proceeds from this book and Quidditch Through the Ages went to charity.

Quidditch through the ages, Kennilworthy Whisp, Hogwarts Library, J. K. RowlingI also picked up a copy of Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp at the same time. I would actually like to see this book made into a movie or just a documentary on the History Channel 🙂

Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them is the first of a five film series. It will be interesting to see  how the series develops and how much more we will learn about historical figures from the Harry Potter series. Who will show up in future films that we have heard about in the books?

Now the question, should I try and see the movie this weekend or wait until the first weekend rush is over?
